Usually at this point we would be recapping a full year of Open Days and other events at The Weaver’s House.
The year started well with the announcement of ‘Moving Blue’ the City of Culture colour based on the famous ‘Coventry Blue.’ The Weaver’s House team were involved in the research process for the development of the colour and were excited to see the results come to life across the city.
As we know, 2020 would be memorable for very different reasons.
Throughout this challenging year The Weaver’s House and Weavers’ Workshop provided online resources for seasonal craft projects and reading including:
Easter and May Day crafts to make at home
Suggested local history reading
A photographic tour of the house
Celebrating other local venues
Lockdown in another lifetime
There are many more posts to browse on our blog!
We also carried out some essential site maintenance whilst we remained closed this year, we made costumes and revised our Family History book, amongst other things. So work has continued behind the scenes.
We hope to welcome visitors again soon, and will post our plans for 2021 in the New Year. And speaking of the New Year, perhaps it is time to revive the tradition of wassailing? Wassail comes from the Old English was hál, literally: be hale/healthy).
Traditionally it is a beverage of hot mulled cider, drunk as an integral part of the English Medieval Christmastide rituals, to bring a good apple harvest in the coming year. Perhaps some New Year wassailing will bring everyone better fortunes in 2021.
Wishing you a healthy and happy Christmas from all at The Weaver’s House.
